I am a slut. No worries. I’ve come to terms with it, and you will too. I’m not one of those girls who thinks she’s too plain, too fat, too skinny, too shy … no, I don’t have that kind of luck. I’m the girl who knows she’s just right for everyone. — Denver
A reputation as a manwhore–with–a–heart–of–gold tends to precede me. But, I don’t do girls with issues, that is until this girl. It’s this girl I want to fix. This girl I want to protect. And maybe … more. — Ransom
Being in love with the same girl your entire life isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. She uses me in every way imaginable. How does she see me? I am her perpetual one-night stand. No strings, no attachments. Just mind-numbing sex … for her anyway. — Greer
Feeling like the life is being choked out of her in the small town of Anaconda, Montana, Denver Dempsey craves the escape that college offers … even if that means leaving her “best friend with benefits” and looking for a new way to forget. Thinking she’s found the perfect hookup in Ransom, Denver’s outlook on college is bright. That is, until Greer shows up looking for a second chance, and Ransom’s interest turns to hatred.
Love. Hate. Triangle.

Buy the Book
Okay, first off, this book is a left you hanging book. It is hanging in a good way for this kind of book. I just can not believe I have decided to give this high of rating to a not a happy ever after book. I don’t like hang me out to dry books. I can see why this one is. If it was a happy ever after, then this book would be too long to. Sit through.
I love the story line. I was up and down in emotions and I was jumping up. And down in my seat. It got me to read it in one seating but I bounced with the emotions that I was feeling due to what was happening in the story line. I could not see what was going to happen next and that excites me. I love when a book does that.
Ransom is my new book boyfriend! Oh my what a character change that I did not see coming. He is sooo better than Mr. Gray, yes I did just say that and I will again. This book will get you to rethink that “Fifty Shades” thing. Oh my! I can not wait for the next book to wrap this up. I hope to be on the blog tour for that one too. Lol if not, I’m buying the book anyway.
Denver, on the other hand, is a character that reminds me of myself and that is scary in its self. I cried just thinking about what she went through. I was touched by this character. The only thing different between Denver and me is the name, taste in music, and I am not a rodeo star. Enough said and read the book to know more.
*I got an ARC for a real honest review.*

When she’s not writing riveting stories, she likes to focus on her macramé art and her scouring of eBay, where she buys locks of hair from her favorite rock stars, most especially Bret Michaels and Dave Grohl.
